Sukuk are Islamic Sharia-compliant securities issued by companies or governments to raise money from investors for a specific period of time with a specific payment date. During this period, the sukuk usually distributes a fixed or variable profit rate periodically. At the end of the sukuk term, which is known as the maturity date, the sukuk issuer pays the principal (the value of the sukuk) collected from the investors.
These amounts will be used by the issuer to refinance its existing debt, and for general corporate purposes.
